19. I suppose that's true, but I often enjoy a good chewy discussion
with someone who has an opposing viewpoint. Insults and attacks take the fun out of it.

I remember quite a while back I had an interesting conversation with mike_c. We were coming from very different mindsets, but the conversation was respectful on both sides. I wound up enjoying the discourse. It's good to know why people hold the opinions they do.
